  • Scented with a chypre scent of citrus, amber, oakmoss

Perhaps no other shaving soap maker today has put more thought and testing into their soaps than Wholly Kaw. Natural, environmentally conscious, exceptional lather, fantastic scents have been developed through meticulous effort and extensive peer review. You get the benefits with Wholly Kaw Tallow Shaving Soap, Chypre Rose Concerto.

Their soaps make a conscious effort to eliminate any parabens, chemical sulfates, and dyes. Instead high quality ingredients like kokum butter, shea butter, cocoa butter are used to nourish your skin. Their tallow version doesn't contain coconut oil. Synthetic options are only used in cases where the organic choice is banned or harmful. So what does this mean for the performance of this product? The reviews speak for themselves: "Dear Lord. . . this is quite a treat!" You get a cushiony, protective lather with incredible glide and consistency. It is a soft soap that can be pressed into a favorite mug or bowl for use or lathered right in the ample tub.

A Chypre scent is a perfume classification for aromas that contain a citrus top note, amber heart, and oakmoss/musk base. For this fragrance, Wholly Kaw has used notes of lime, bergamot, rose, lavender, rosemary, geranium, lilac, then the middle is centered on labdanum (the resin is blended with myrrh and benzoin for the amber character), all this on top of patchouli, oakmoss and cedarwood base. Opens with a rose scent and then mellows into an amber and woody scent.

One reviewer said, You can tell that this is rose scented, but it's not a singular note. There is citrus, sweet and a little woody scent. It's incredibly pleasing while not being overly floral. This tallow base it fantastic and generated a superb lather.

Size: 4oz of soap (in a 6oz tub)

Excellent soap, a very floral scent

This soap performs superbly. Excellent lather! The scent is very true to its name, it’s extremely floral. It’s not a soap I’m in the mood for every shave but when I want something fresh and floral this is the one.

Superb Performance / For me, scent is just okay

Like all Wholly Kaw donkey milk and tallow soaps I have tried, this one is incredibly slick, provides excellent ghost lather, and leaves the face feeling good. I thought it might smell something like Fougere Bouquet - which I love - but it does not. I gave it five stars anyway because (1) the performance is stellar, (2) the scent, even in my book, is passable, and (3) scent is so very personal.
